Generator Self-Starting

I always thought that it would be nice to have one of those generators that automatically comes on and charges the batteries when they are low. Alas, this is not a factory option on the D. But, Fleetwood did unwittingly add a feature that has caused some D owners generators to start all by themselves.

Seems that the "autostart" problem is due to condensation dripping from the engine air conditioner lines in front of the coach. The condensation drips onto the electronic controls and, presto, the generator starts.

Fleetwood supposedly has a fix for this. Some D owners have fashioned their own metal tray or something as simple as a plastic baggie over the genset controls.
